Donating to the Book Cellar

The West Lafayette Public Library accepts donations of items in good condition.

Donations of up to five boxes or grocery-sized bags can be dropped off at the Library anytime during our open hours. Gently used materials will be sold in our bookstore or added to the collection.  All donated items become the property of the West Lafayette Public Library and can not be returned or otherwise tracked.

Contact the Library for more information about donating materials or our used bookstore.
